Other Upcoming Events

The Pennsylvania Care Partnership will host a webinar, “Intergenerational Caregiving Across Pennsylvania” on July 20, at 2:30 p.m. This webinar will provide valuable insights for individuals of all backgrounds, regardless of whether or not you have personal caregiving experience. The purpose of this webinar is to shed light on the crucial role of intergenerational caregiving within the state of Pennsylvania. Additionally, as July is recognized as National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, we aim to explore the intersection of mental health concerns among BIPOC and underrepresented communities in the context of youth and intergenerational caregiving. This webinar promises to be an engaging and informative event for anyone interested in caregiving, mental health, and the diverse experiences of our communities. We are excited to see you and to have you participate in this critical discussion. Remember, mental health is vital to overall well-being, and we must support communities to reach their goals. By spreading awareness and fostering supportive environments, we can collectively promote positive mental health for all. Click here to register.
